The Truth With Elliott Wilson: Will Andre 3000 Ever Make Another Album? [Video]

Probably not YN. Nice try though.

Andre 3 stack is a legend. To this new breed of Hip-Hoppers, he's a ghost. A myth. We bring him up on these social networks and they take to Google. The selfish side of me screams "Ahn-Dray! Ahn-Dray! Out-Kast! Out-Kast!" but the logical me understand the 3k fade.

I think in order to make the music fans demand and expect over time, an artist's heart has to be in a project from start to finish. Without doubt. Also, in today's musical realm, if I'm Andre 3000, I'm not sure why I even consider dropping an album. There are factors I have to deal with. Real life factors, like 1. Time (I'm the new Jimi Hendrix... ... ...ya bish), 2. Money (who funds this project? Me? If so, is that how I'd like to spend my money?) and 3. Media Scrutiny (So, the same person or people practically BEGGING me to drop something is the same person or are the same people ready, willing and probably looking forward to ripping my shit apart? I'll pass. Thanks. Who needs a verse though?)

These factors are real and most likely exactly what every body's favorite ATLien is contemplating as I type this.

Hey Dre, sixteen is enough my brother.
